Seven AP Top 25 groups were agitated with the end of the week, none more incredibly than No. 2-positioned and already unbeaten South Florida. The Bulls looked marvelous this season until losing to Rutgers 30-27 out and about.
South Florida, who many idea was THAT acceptable, is presently, best case scenario, 6-1 and even from a pessimistic standpoint a paper tiger.
The Bulls actually need to make a trip to Connecticut, Syracuse and Pittsburgh, and host Cincinnati and Louisville at home. Connecticut is 6-1, Cincinnati is 6-2 and Pittsburgh just resentful No. 23-positioned Cincinnati, 24-17.
Of the 6 unbeaten groups going into the end of the week Ohio State, South Florida, Boston College, Arizona State, Kansas and Hawaii-I anticipated that South Florida and Arizona State had the most obvious opportunity with regards to completing undefeated. So much for the South Florida expectation.
Boston College, Arizona State and Hawaii-each of the 7-0-were out of danger as they didn’t play. Give careful consideration of the way that Arizona State is positioned No. 4 in scoring guard, surrendering just 15 focuses per game.
No. 1-positioned Ohio State and No. 15-positioned Kansas stayed undefeated as the 8-0 Buckeyes facilitated by Michigan State 24-17 at home, and the 7-0 Jayhawks headed out to Colorado and won 19-14.
Ohio State has the No. 1 scoring protection in the country, surrendering just 7.9 focuses per game. Kansas has the No. 2 scoring guard, surrendering 10.1 ppg. On the off chance that you think guard wins titles, you are correct.
Acquiring the worst part of the deal were:
1) Steve Spurrier’s No. 6-positioned South Carolina Gamecocks facilitated Vanderbilt and lost, 17-6, giving the Commodores their greatest success in 70 years. Vanderbilt’s last large success was a 7-6 triumph over No. 6 LSU in 1937, proof of how ineffectual Vanderbilt has been during the most recent 70 years. Envision being responsible for raising money for the Vanderbilt football program throughout the previous 69 years.
The loss must be horrendous for Spurrier whose South Carolina group had been looking better a lot on its move up the Top 25.
2) No. 8-positioned Kentucky facilitated No. 14-positioned Florida and instantly was outscored 45-37.
3) The No. 10-positioned California Bears made a trip to UCLA and lost 30-21 to the Bruins. UCLA resembles a yo-yo this year. บาคาร่า ฝาก ถอน ไม่มีขั้นต่ำ The previously tenth positioned Bruins took a butt whipping at Utah, 44-6, then, at that point facilitated Notre Dame and lost 20-6, giving the 1-7 Irish their solitary success of the year. It appeared well and good that UCLA would then irritated California.
There is, obviously, no fact to the talk that Bruin players went through mental testing.
4) No. 20-positioned Tennessee made a trip to Alabama and got hammered 41-17. Watch out for Nick Saban’s Crimson Tide who are currently 6-2 and host LSU this Saturday.
5) As referenced prior, No. 23-positioned Cincinnati lost to Pittsburgh 24-17.
6) No. 25-positioned Kansas State experienced difficulty out and about, getting nipped by Oklahoma State 41-39.
The new AP Top 25 Poll shows Arizona State jumping from No. 12 to No. 7, Florida from No. 14 to No. 9, and Michigan from No. 24 to No. 19.
Entering the Top 25 this week was Virginia at No. 21, Alabama at No. 22, Penn State at No. 24 and Rutgers at No. 25. All with the exception of Virginia were positioned in the Top 25 prior in the season.
So the new Top 10 after week 8 are: 1 Ohio State, 2 Boston College, 3 LSU, 4 Oklahoma, 5 Oregon, 6 West Virginia, 7 Arizona State, 8 Virginia Tech and tied for 9 USC and Florida.
I need to offer props to Ohio State (No. 1) and Kansas (No. 2) as a result of their guard, however the best adjusted scoring offense and scoring protection is Kansas as the Jayhawks are likewise No. 3 in scoring offense while Ohio State is No. 33.
Dennis Erickson has his Arizona State Sun Devils at No. 4 in scoring safeguard and No. 12 in scoring offense. Oklahoma is No. 5 in offense and No. 12 in guard. West Virginia is No. 7 in offense and No. 10 in safeguard. These figures are among 119 Division 1-A schools.
Sagarin’s Ratings have the Top 10 in a specific order: 1 LSU, 2 Kansas, 3 Ohio State, 4 Arizona State, 5 South Florida, 6 Oregon, 7 West Virginia, 8 Florida, 9 Oklahoma, and 10 Boston College. For certain fans, this is a more precise manual for who the fanny-kickers truly are.
For the record, the most exceedingly terrible of the most exceedingly terrible is 0-7 Florida International. The Golden Panthers are not all that brilliant. They lost again Saturday to Louisiana-Monroe 28-14, stretching out their losing streak to 19 successive games, the longest in the country.
Indeed, Florida International has a football crew, simply a sorry football crew.
The Golden Panthers rank way behind everyone (No. 119) in scoring offense (8 ppg) and No. 114 in scoring guard (34 ppg). No big surprise they are 0-7 and 0-19 in their last 19 games.
Florida International joined Duke a year ago as the lone other winless group in Division 1-A. I needed to look into their moniker, a definite sign that they are not qualified to try and be on my radar screen. Except if they begin winning, their epithet should be: Florida Who?
